The past few weeks have been busy! We had a great trip to Johns Hopkins and Carter recieved a great report. Our wonderful urologist at Hopkins said Carter needs a Daddy more than he needs surgery right now. So we will plan his surgery after we get Brandon's treatment going. While at Johns Hopkins we were able to attend the annual picnic for exstrophy children. We learned a lot and best of all we met 7 families that have children with the same condition as Carter. It was great to talk with families that have been and are going through the same things we are. Carter met some kids that share a lot of common bonds and I am sure they will be friends forever! We hope we will be able to attend the annual conference every year. Carter will be going to the University of Alabama-Birmingham on the 26th for a therapy evaluation. In the next few weeks we will also be going to UAB for a MRI with sedation, I am unsure of the date at this time.
Brandon had a biopsy performed today and we will recieve the results Monday. Besides being sore and having a nice battle wound on his neck, Brandon did great with the biopsy and surgery. We were very fortunate to know his surgery and recovery room nurses. They took great care of him and we are thankful! We both have strong faith in Jesus and know that His plan is perfect. We may not always get the results we want but know it is part of a much larger plan. We have witnessed so many blessings with Carter and know we will experience the same with Brandon. We believe in the power of prayer, we know God has a mighty hand and will protect our family through all of these trials. We will not grow weary, we will not lose our faith, we will not be shaken! Our God is an awesome God and we give him all the glory! We believe in Jesus!
I have set the Lord always before me. Because he is at my right hand, I will not be shaken. (Psalm 16:8)
